Phalek empire main tank

Postby motorhead fan » Sat Apr 23, 2016 3:22 am

All across the empire, A.W.E. factories have begun to mass produce their brand new tank for the minifig armies.

First, I'd like to say hello to someone, but I don't know who. On the Facebook page of the forum, someone once Drew me a crude drawing of a Phalek with a new eye design, I tried it on one but with a cone and it looked way to big. I finally did it properly and got a stud with a hole in it, and also found something where it looks the right size:
Image
You can see it here on the turret, so thank you to whoever it was who gave me that design.

Image
Standing at a very reasonable 8", it is as long as my 8" hovertank, but twice as wide.
the main cannon is 5" long. It also has:
1 minigun
2 grenade launchers
1 missile launcher with 4 missiles.

Image
Here is a side view, you can see the awesome flag which I gave it.

Image
in my last bricklink order, in whihch came the last parts, I also got these 5 P.D.F. troopers.

Image
And last but not least, here is the back.

I do have other vehicles, infantry and at least 2 more S.P.A members planned, but I think I'm going to have a little break.
I'm thinking of buying Empire: Total War, playing as England and wiping out the entire population of earth.

I don't know what to call this tank, so if you have any ideas, fire away! :)

Can the gun aim upwards? Because on mine, it keeps flopping down and it's a bit annoying.

That's quite a nice and dandy tank. Might need to get more of these tread links for mine.

Thanks for the kind words everyone, but attack who?

The reason this looks better than my usual stuff(I think) is that I used LDD to make it, therefore I could make it, change it and ask people for their advice on how to make it better without actually owning it.
In general I just pick up a bunch of bricks and hope for the best when I make stuff, and I don't have that many bricks (or do I?).
I plan to make several more vehicles using LDD, but that'll take a while.

But my dear lad, the Doktor has a tank of his own...

Now that would make an interesting forum battle; the Doktor playing guitar on a tank vs an axe wielding "hero" :D

Agreed, looks like the Phaleks are getting some serious firepower over here.
Ask now what I'm doing, even for me :mystery:

Hey, Motorhead, I "Borrowed" The angled plate design at the front for a new tank of mine, I hope you don't mind. It looks great.
